Rocks out do No. 1,2. Atunncl of red and gold echoes of "We arc Rocky", a sea of swirled pom-poms covered the fieldhouse and the Rocks assembled on the court, prepared to take on the number-one ranked Quincy Blue Devils. The Rocks, however, did not only take on the Blue Devils, but they conquered them by nineteen points. The Rocks knew victory, as they looked it straight in the eyes since the start of the season. The annual Turkey Tournament, hosted by the Rocks, began the season and sparked them to a five game win streak. Then, along with Quincy at 1-0 in the conference, the Rocks visited the Devils homccourt and were stopped short by six points. Quincy held onto their number-one ranking. The following evening. Rocky fans saw their team fall to a Davenport West come-back that tied and won a game Coach Reid became involved in a confrontation with an official, he was then asked to leave the fieldhouse. Assistant coaching took over and the Rocks still played with their full speed and intensity, but ended up losing by only four points. With five losses against ten wins, the re-match with number-one Quincy arrived. It was to be the biggest game that the Rock Island Fieldhouse had seen in a long time. Before the game, Quincy had won 25 straight conference games and had 12 straight wins against Rock Island. They had developed an aura of invincibility, but the high spirits of the chanting fans and the playing of the Rocks gave them a nineteen point victory over the Blue Devils. As the floor became smothered w ith fans, senior forward Tony Johnson proclaimed, "This is what I've wanted for a lifetime-to beat Quincy before I left Rock Island." The following night, as fans still discussed the win, the Rocks lost a big lead to lose to Proviso West, on the road. In an eight game win-streak to come, the Rocks avenged losses to Davenport West and Galesburg. Galesburg was currently ranked second, and in the last 5:50 of the game, the Rocks outscored Galesburg 24-9 to steal the victory. Finally, in the last conference game. Rocky outscored the Maroons to beat them, while Galesburg beat Quincy to put the Rocks in a three-way tic for Western Big Six Champs along with Galesburg and Quincy. Along with the games and victories, highlights and happenings occured during the season. Harllee Miller was awarded Prep of the Week in the Quad-City Times during January. And when the fans "wanted" Shellhousc, he sat with them and they got him, and added a lighter side to the history of the 82-83 Rocks. S2 Var n Bjvkcihjll
